ІІІ International Scientific and Practical Internet Conference “PROBLEMS AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF MODERN BIOTECHNOLOGY” in conditions of war
On March 24, 2023, the Department of Biotechnology of the National Pharmaceutical University held the 3rd International Scientific and Practical Internet Conference “PROBLEMS AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF MODERN BIOTECHNOLOGY”.
Humanity entered the third millennium with deep knowledge in the field of biotechnological practices, which significantly influenced the life of society. Biotechnology is one of the oldest and at the same time one of the youngest sciences and fields of research and production. It is a powerful tool for the sustainable development of pharmacy and medicine, the food industry, crop production, animal husbandry and veterinary medicine, and environmental protection technologies. That is why the goal of the conference was to promote the development of this multidisciplinary science for the benefit of humanity.
Achievements of scientists and practitioners in various fields of biotechnology are reflected in more than 220 theses of conference participants and were presented in 18 reports. It was a great honor for us to communicate with scientists and educators, students of higher education and young scientists, representatives of biotechnological enterprises of various industries. It is nice that the conference became a platform for communication and exchange of ideas with domestic and foreign colleagues.
